Reader's note

A 1948 first edition of Science News 8. The editorial note begins: Facts and more facts! cry the laboratory scientists, banging their fists with approval on the bench, and jolting some apparatus in the course of construction. But what's their significance? say the natural philosophers, looking up from their desks, leaving a mixture of doodles and speculations scribbled notepaper before them. And the two groups eye one another with suspicion and mistrust. Which camp you work in is a matter of temperament, and the sad truth is that so few are capable of work in both. Yet both are essential to the progress of science. All the time, the experimenter is battered by a flood of inchoate sensations arriving simultaneously though all his sense to his brain: how shall he select the significant, direct his powers of concentration and interpretation, except by reference to some theory previously acquired and now perhaps so completely absorbed as to be a part of the unquestioned dogma of his everyday life?
